Kim Jae-joong, who had been accused from both countries in Japan and South Korea due to his failed joke about the coronavirus, resumes activity after a month.
His Japanese agency recently announced that Kim Jaejoong was going to appear as a guest on TV show scheduled for May 3 through the official website ‘JJUN’. It is his first time appearance on the broadcast since April Fool’s Day.
The broadcast is a music program, NHK BS premium ‘Tamaki Koji Show’ hosted by singer Tamaki Koji from the band ‘Anzen Chitai’.
On April 26, Japan’s NHK also stated, “The singer Ayaka and Ikimono Kari appear to perform music talks, while Kim Jaejoong appears singing ‘Melody’.”
Earlier, on April Fool’s Day Kim Jaejoong revealed that he was “infected with Coronavirus” through his social media. One hour after posting, he faced heavy criticism over falsely announcing a diagnosis of COVID-19 and said, “It was a lie to give awareness.” The program scheduled for the day, the 3rd, and the 5th were all canceled due to his absurd lie without realizing the seriousness of the situation.
